The chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Kano State, Senator Mas’ud EL-Jibril Doguwa, has said that his party and other opposition parties were rigged out of today’s local government election even before the conduct of the election and announcements of the final results by the Kano State Independent Electoral Commission (KANSIEC)
The State PDP chairman made the assertion while speaking with the LEADERSHIP Weekend Reporter on the phone yesterday over the readiness or otherwise of the party to partake in today’s local government election.
He said the PDP had already being rigged out as a result of the inability of most of its candidates to buy the exorbitant electoral forms which the state electoral body deliberately charged in order to discouraged popular participation.
Beside, Doguwa called on the Kano State Independent Electoral Commission (KANSIEC) to as a matter of utmost urgency furnished the opposition parties with the lists of all the APC candidates participating in today’s local government election in the state, their bank tellers, and the bank account numbers they paid the monies for the electoral forms in or risk fresh legal action.
The Chairman said , the PDP will not relent in its efforts to continue to blame the ruling party and KANSIEC for deliberately over hiking the cost of the electoral forms. And alleged that all the APC candidates that participated in the contest have not paid one Kobo to the electoral body.
He said, “The APC at the national level deliberately strangulates the economy there by making it impossible for the PDP candidates who have nothing in their hand since they vacate power in 2O15 to meet up with the financial requirements necessary for the contest.
The state PDP requested KANSIEC to stop forth with the idea of collecting huge money from people aspiring the position of leadership because it would amount to setting a bad precedent. What if similar opportunity fall in favour of the opposition parties in the near future how will the APC feel if their members fail to accomplished their political mission due to the deliberate sales of exorbitant electoral forms.
